I always enjoy having people out to the ranch for the fist time. And I especially love when those people are children who have never been on a ranch before. This weekend, my boys had a few friends over, and surprisingly, one of the boys’ sister wanted to tag along.
No one was more excited about this than me!
My excitement soon turned to panic as I realized I hadn’t been around a young girl in many years. I wasn’t sure I remembered how to do girlie things.
Luckily, she was game for anything, including a trip to the creek for some fishing.
I couldn’t help but smile at some of the things she said along the way. It reminded me of myself at one point in time. Here are a few of my favorite quotes:
“Ugh! I just hit a tree.”
“Ew! I just stepped in poop!”
“I fell in.” (…the creek)
“Oh! What a pretty flower!”
“I think it was a girl cause it didn’t have that stuff on its head.” (…on seeing a doe)
“What’s a doe?”
“A who?” (…on catching a carp)
“How do you get your cows to stay in without a fence?”
“You meant to say resting, right?” (…on telling her the chickens were roosting.)
I love girls. I think I need one.
